Went to Agrodolce for a group work related lunch. Food was prepared very quickly and arrived hot and fresh. Great restaurant for authentic Italian pastas, salads and pizza. Agrodolce is the perfect spot. Nice casual location. We will definitely be back!

This is much more like a downtown restaurant - quality-wise - than one tucked into a suburban shopping center. On a nice evening, sitting outside (no music blaring from speakers - yay!), sipping a glass of wine, nibbling on the complimentary bread and tapenade, then appetizer/main course...very relaxing. Very well done - and quite delicious. We'll be back anytime we're... More

I've never had a bad meal at this restaurant. It's our "go to" place when we want a fresh, hot meal. Their baked asparagus and risotto balls are out of this world. Their pizza is made from 100% fresh ingredients and baked in a wood fire stove. Their pasta is first rate, as are their meat and seafood entrees. Five... More

I love this Italian-American restaurant tucked away in Germantown. I hate going to chain restaurants so it always makes me happy when I find a family owned restaurant with mouth watering food, creative menu, and cozy atmosphere:) The servers and management are always friendly and accommodating. They have a fantastic selection of craft beers and many from local breweries. During... More

Ordered caprese salad. Supposedly house made mozzarella. It was thin sliced hard cheese. My husband won't come here but I decided to try it again. Definitely won't be back

Chrissy ... Thank you for alerting us to the issue you had with our fresh mozzarella on Friday night. We do make our cheese in-house and, unfortunately, the ball from which your Caprese Salad was made had been over-kneaded, which resulted in a less than perfect product. This has never been a problem for us before so we were able... More

My wife and I split a very nice meal of fried risotto balls and a pizza because we had a gift certificate here. We've eaten here before and it's been solid, nothing spectacular, but good food. The restaurant is pretty small and cramped with the seats being a bit too close to the seats behind you. There is outdoor seating... More

The dining area is small and tables cramped. Food was ok but pricey for what you get. Personally u will not be going back. Seemed to much like pricey fast food.

My husband and 12 year old son both enjoy this restaurant. My son enjoys the pizza as well as the foccia and bruschetta.

They have the best Italian in the area, we had passed this place by for years; big mistake. I had the chicken florentine, it was great cooked to perfection. My husband had the chicken parmigiano also cooked to perfection. The homemade bread that's served with each meal is also tasty.
